Who are some guys out there that are potential high stolen base threats that no one talks about and are probably on a lot of free agent lists? Im guessing guys like matt lawton, randy winn, lew ford, coco crisp, dave roberts........who else would u guys say? how would you rank those 5 i mentioned?
Dave Roberts is not a sleeper. He could be one of top three basestealers IF he stays healthy and avoids prolonged slumps. However, he never stays healthy; he always develops a nagging leg injury around June which lingers the rest of the year. Accordingly hw will be cheap at an auction or a latter round pick at a draft. Also, he provides nothing else but steals.
Or the obvious candidate... Ryan Freel! 2b/3b/of eligible and 37 SB's last year! The only problem... he might not start (why does Cinci have such a raging boner for D'Angelo?). But I would bet he'll pinch run every game he doesn't play and still rack up some pretty good SB numbers.
